Description

In 'Project - properties - General - 'Save path'' one can choose 'relative' or 'absolute'. Default always 'relative' is set, and this with every project that is made. It is not possible to start a project with the default setting 'absolute'.
It would be nice to have an overall QGis-setting (on the level of 'Settings' 'Options' 'General'(or 'Data sources')) that allows how the 'Save path'-setting is set when starting a new project.
This would make it possible to:
- Change the place of the qgis-project without losing data-links in a way you are sure of it.
- Save templates with absolute links to images (eg company logos of arrows)
